Action for Cleaner Shenley

Action for a Cleaner Shenley

The ACS initiative was started in August 2015 to help make our lovely village cleaner and tidier.   Major Hertsmere Borough Council budget cuts have meant that virtually nothing is being done to keep pavements clear or signage clean.  Other areas are suffering and litter clearance has also been affected.   There is a great deal that needs to be done.  Shenley Parish Council is trying to address the problem and ACS is one of the solutions.

Volunteering in Shenley Park

Midweek volunteering on Thursday mornings 9.30-12.30.

If you would like to come and join in light gardening duties to help tidy up the Park this could be for you. The basic tasks around the Park would include footpath clearance, weeding, composting around the base of newly planted trees, checking tree ties and light pruning of apple trees. Contact the office for an application pack.

1st Shenley Cubs – Jan 2018 Report

Girlguiding is for all girls, whatever their background or circumstances. We offer them fun, exciting activities and the chance to make lifelong friends. We give girls their own space – a place where they can really be themselves with other girls and share the experience of growing up as a girl in today’s world. We give girls a voice – confidence, skills and information to make informed decisions. We change as the lives of girls change and are relevant to today’s girls because our girls matter!

Rainbows (aged 5-7) have their first sleepovers, Brownies (aged 7-10) learn body confidence, Guides (aged 10-14) abseil down walls they have climbed themselves and Rangers (14-18) have amazing experiences no other organisation can offer, travelling the world, learning to lead, raising their voices on issues important to them whilst building their CV.

Girlguiding Radlett District is fortunate to have nine units operating because of our fantastic trained volunteers, but all of our units are at capacity and we and are still adding Brownies and Rainbows to our waiting lists.

New volunteers are always welcome and receive full training and support.

So Join US – both girls and adults – we want to share the fun we have together. Girlguiding’s website contains all of the information you need to get you started www.girlguiding.org.uk
We look forward to welcoming you!

1st Shenley Cubs – Jan 2018 Report

Take twenty-four extremely enthusiastic Cubs, throw in a selection of hammers, screwdrivers, hacksaws and even the odd power tool and its enough to make even the hardiest of leaders come over slightly queasy!

Yes, for some crazy reason we decided to spend the Autumn term tackling the DIY badge, and I’m delighted to announce the pack incredibly managed to achieved this with all fingers and toes intact.

They learnt how to safely operate  a wide range of tools, and really loved getting stuck in hammering, sanding, drilling and sawing. They then took their new found skills and each produced a handmade wooden photo frame to present to their parents for Christmas.

Shenley Bowls Club – 2018

Normally, the article from the Shenley Bowls Club is all about trying to recruit new members, but this season we have managed to enlist 4 new bowlers.  The club is extremely happy, but we would like to encourage a few younger people to the game.

The picture above was taken at Braughing Bowls Club, last week.  Braughing is famous for sausages and is about 15 miles from Cambridge.  Shenley has entered a county competition which has both a home and away component. There are 4 teams from each club playing against each other. One team is made up of four players, one of three players, one with two and then a single. Our players are wearing canary yellow tea shirts and are shown playing in the triple event.  Unfortunately, we lost 3 games to one, but we hope we will do better at the home return match at the end of the month.

Knit and Natter

Knit and Natter is somewhat of a misnomer and we have thought of renaming the group Craft and Chatter as the within the group we have knitters, crocheters, quilters, dry felters and ladies who bring their adult colouring books. However, old habits die hard and we have a knitted banner saying Knit and Natter that we used on Apple Day and we do not want to make a new one!

We meet every Monday morning (except for bank holidays) at the Orchard Tea Rooms, in Shenley Park from 10.30am till noon. Alex and his staff make us most welcome and many of us stay on for lunch afterwards. We seem to attract a lot of attention and we have had wool and a marvellous collection of vintage patterns given to us by other customers who have seen us there.

Yoga Practice with Sharòn

I have been practising yoga for over 20 years & was lucky enough early on, to discover how deeply supportive & enriching it could be & continues to be, in my everyday life, physically, emotionally & spiritually.

I share a gentle & restorative Hatha yoga practice, with physical postures alongside Meditation & Relaxation, a reconnection of mind, body & soul.

Yoga is a process of self-enquiry, a choice to explore how you feel, greater awareness of your Breath & a deeper understanding of Yoga philosophy.

Elstree District Explorer Scouts usually meet at Well End Scout Activity Centre on Thursday evenings at 8pm during term time.

The explorers are aged 14-18 and take part in a range of activities, both at the Scout Centre and also at other locations.

Activities are diverse, and in the past few months have included: bell boating, cooking, a talk on mental health, camp fire lighting and a night hike.

In the Autumn we attended a District Camp in The Peak District, which included cycling, climbing and walking activities, as well as a trip to Alton Towers.

One of our explorer scouts has been selected to attend the World Scout Jamboree in the USA in 2019.

We currently have spaces and would welcome new members.
